Agreed!!! Now how about we focus on MOTORCYCLES! I don't know about you guys, but I still enjoy reading the older articles MO still has available, as well as the test videos (hey, are they still available?)...

Sean, one of the best articles MO has ever written.



You especially captured the essence or riding something with a rigid frame, 9 feet long. Well done.



In these days of "perfect" motorcycles, it's nice to see one get roasted.



But I have to ask, what's next? Rat bikes?

Yes, if you click on the "VIDEOS" tab on the homepage, you can see every video that MO has ever published. -Sean

No slight meant to Ebass, or MO. I just hope someone at MO is keeping a real good diary. When MO goes big time, the monday night movie (based off the early days) will be great to watch

I like the differing opinions/styles/takes on the motorcycle world.

Just hope reviews and such keep coming up, with the expected flair.

I am curious as to how many bikes are available from the manufactures for the press to test. I say if they have anything, grab it and test it.

Thanks for the review.

Wow, this is a first. Nearly everyone posting for once agrees- to hate choppers. I always knew it there was a bond amoung us (I have to admit when I first joined MO I thought it was everyone hates KPaul). Well, I'm not going to break the trend for sure.



Sean, as for the question, "What do you think about choppers, should we cover more of them in the future, or should we stick to the mainstream stuff? Well, I think the Reader Feedback has answered that well enough. Once a year is enough so long as you rag the hell out of it, make us laugh, and show pics of hot chicks.



However, I remember once the question being asked, "Should MO cover more dirt?" I am assuming you were not referring to the Monica Lewinsky, Swift Boat, "He didn't show up for National Guard duty", "I alone deserve the gold medal" kind of dirt but to dirt riding. To which I answered Yes, yes, yes, yes, etc.



Was I the only one (or only one of a few?)?

Hey, don't get in Darwin's way! Choppers Rule! Front brakes are DANGEROUS! Chopping up a Duc?, Man that's just wrong.

In 1971, Dirt Bike magazine raced a 650 Triumph "Sunset Tripper" chopper (built by Burbank Triumph, now Burbank Kawasaki) in the Mint 400.



It had a 2' over front end, and would have place well, if not for a flat rear tire.



Maybe they should have tested the Big Dog in the dirt. With all that rake, it would be sweet in the whoops.



And no rear suspension to fade. Now there's a concept.
